Principles of Circuit and Interconnect Simulation (2Hr)
M. Nakhla and R. Achar
(ISBN
0973104716; First Edition: May 1, 2002; Omniz Global Knowledge Corporation)
This multimedia based book
discusses the principles and algorithms used in conventional analog circuit
simulators such as SPICE.

The book starts by introducing
various terminologies and basic concepts used in analog circuit simulators. This
is followed by a detailed coverage of formulation of circuit equations (modified
nodal analysis – MNA) and device stamps for most commonly used analog circuit
components. Also it outlines how to systematically build a circuit matrix from a
given netlist. Then it introduces the reader to the underlying principles of
frequency and timedomain analysis. This is followed by a systematic formulation
of circuit equations in the presence nonlinear elements and highspeed
interconnect subnetworks. Also it provides a discussion on major interconnect
simulation issues. 
This CD based multimedia book contains approximately two hours of intense
multimedia presentations and is offered in a userfriendly desktop environment
where one can learn the indepth valuable material at his own pace and chosen
timeschedule. The material presented is useful for designers as well as to
those interested in understanding the internals of analog circuit simulators
such as SPICE. It is also very useful to managers, application engineers and the
marketing staff, working in the area of analog circuit simulators and analog
designs.

This book has a complete exam which
is designed to test the level of one's understanding after
completing the study. The questions are such that they broadly cover the
material taught in the course and are formulated to reinforce the
concepts learnt during the study. The solutions, corrected exam and the final
marks are provided after the completion of the exam.
A Comprehensive list of
related references in the leading IEEE international journals and conferences is
provided.
